Pro Tip #13: Benchmark for Deep Learning using NVIDIA GPU Cloud and Tensorflow (Part 2): Hardware Considerations

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Jun 21, 2019 @ 12:00 PM

In this blog post, I will go over the hardware considerations I used when putting together a system for benchmarking GPU performance for Deep Learning using Ubuntu 18.04, NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) and TensorFlow. Keep in mind that everyone will have different budgets and requirements for their own systems, which can and will result in a wide range of configurations. My particular list should serve only as a reference; your system will likely be different based on your own requirements.

Before we dive into the details, let’s go over what we are seeking to accomplish.  Our goal is to build a system to test the compute performance between different GPUs; therefore the GPU should be the only variable that changes between the different test runs.  To ensure the consistency of our tests, we will remove any potential bottlenecks that will negatively impact GPU performance.

NVIDIA Powered Data Science Workstation

Posted by PNY Pro on Wed, Apr 24, 2019 @ 01:35 PM

According to Data Science Central, a leading online resource for data practitioners, forecasts predict the big data market will approach $203 billion by 2020. Data science is powering the engine of modern enterprise – every industry from retail to financial services to healthcare is deriving insight from data to improve competitiveness and operational efficiency. Retailers are improving forecasting to reduce the cost of excess inventory. Financial services institutions are detecting fraudulent transactions. Healthcare providers are predicting the risk of disease more quickly. Even modest improvements in the accuracy of predictive machine learning models can translate into billions on the bottom line. The NVIDIA accelerated Data Science Workstation (DWS) solution with RAPIDS enables enterprises and data scientists to tap into GPU-accelerated machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) with faster model iteration, better prediction accuracy, and lowest data science total cost of ownership (TCO).

NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 Receives Rave Reviews

Posted by PNY Pro on Wed, Apr 03, 2019 @ 06:29 PM

The Quadro RTX 4000 is already making an impression on the tech community with positive results and projected success. Print and web publications with years of industry involvement such as Develop 3D and Techgage are devoted to providing professionals the technical information they need. They, and others, are committed to their readership and focus on product and workflow enhancements, such as the Quadro RTX 4000, that improve productivity and creativity.

“Compared to previous generations, there’s more than immediately meets the eye with Quadro RTX. The architecture bump from Pascal to Turing in itself represents a big boost in performance (and efficiency), but the addition of Tensor and RT cores helps set RTX apart from the rest of the market." - Rob Williams, Techgage
